This union with creation is a brilliant coronet
What I cannot gain by knowledge
I infect, As I posses.
Put into perspective as I walk up the facade,
Instead of sinking
It's got me thinking.
How could I be wrong when I am right?
I'll never know, we hear the truth and turn away.
Our ears are burning every day.
The quandary is the elucidation oh-ho.
With sightless faith, small steps,and pride,
let that suffice, no longer a spark, It's gone ablaze, before our eyes.
The whole earth trembles at his name in fear and awe,
Instead of blinking, It's got me thinking.
We learn to sacrafice, we learn to take a life.
We take and we don't give.
Live how we want to live.
And no one wants to lie.
But we all have to lie.
Relax, then die.

    General Comment"Instead of sinking / It's got me thinking"
    He realizes that perhaps he has been thinking about things in the wrong light.

    "How could I be wrong when I am right?"
    This is a feeling that so many of us feel. I remember one guy saying "We think of ourselves as moral people. So, if we do something (even something bad) we think to ourselves, 'I did it, so it must be moral' and then we justify it in our minds." We need to be right in our actions so in our minds we justify our actions.

    "I'll never know, we hear the truth and turn away"
    This is something I'm always a bit scared of deep down, that I'll miss out on the truth because I ignored it. I think that's a pretty significant fear for lots of people (maybe not in so many words, but still a fear). I think it's important for us as people to search for the truth.

    "We take and we don't give / Live how we want to live / And no one wants to lie / But we all have to lie"
    Lots of time we just go along with things because it's too hard to go fight against them. There are two important "althoughs" here though (and they're both different). Although it's the reality of the way things happen, we don't always want to accept it. And although, it's the reality of the way things happen, we have to let it stay that way.
